Tour itinerary

This grand tour departs from Siena in the afternoon and gives you the opportunity to enjoy the varying colours of the Tuscan landscape as you watch the sun set over the Chianti Hills. It includes a visit to one of the region's most refined wine cellars, where you can sample local wine and enjoy a snack of bruschetta, Tuscan cheese and cured meats. Then, as you recline in the comfort of an air-conditioned luxury bus, you can admire the harmonious colours of the vineyards that blend from ruby and violet to vibrant green, and also see ancient churches, medieval castles and quaint hamlets that time forgot.

The tour then continues to San Gimignano, where you will have free time to explore the World Heritage Site, which is famous for its many ancient towers. After your day discovering Chianti, you will be returned to Siena.
